Spend It All (1971)

The Cajuns of Southwest Louisiana still retain the language, camaraderie and old world spirit of their French-speaking Acadian ancestors. Les Blank’s (www.lesblank.com) film captures the intense bravado and vitality of their lives, in scenes such as quarter horse racing, coffee roasting, accordion building, cooking and eating supper along with the intoxicating music of the Balfa Brothers, Marc Savoy, Nathan Abshire and others.

www.coreybarksdale.com New Orleans (pronounced /nuːˈɔliənz, nuːˈɔlənz/ locally and often pronounced /nuːɔrˈliːnz/ in most other US dialects French: La Nouvelle-Orléans is a major United States port city and the largest city in Louisiana. New Orleans is the center of the Greater New Orleans metropolitan area, the largest metro area in the state. New Orleans is located in southeastern Louisiana, straddling the Mississippi River. It is coextensive with Orleans Parish, meaning that the boundaries of the city and the parish are the same. It is bounded by the parishes of St. Tammany (north), St. Bernard (east), Plaquemines (south), and Jefferson (south and west). Lake Pontchartrain, part of which is included in the city limits, lies to the north, and Lake Borgne lies to the east. The city is named after Philippe II, Duc d’Orléans, Regent of France, and is one of the oldest cities in the United States. It is well known for its multicultural and multilingual heritage, cuisine, architecture, music (particularly as the birthplace of jazz), and its annual Mardi Gras and other celebrations and festivals.

How long would it take a freighter or cargo ship to travel from New Orleans, Louisiana to Venice, Italy?

I am a fiction writer and my ususal research sources have failed me on this occasion. I’m just looking for a ballpark estimate from New Orleans to Venice with maybe one refueling stop if necessary.

It depends entirely on how fast the ship can travel. A ship that travels at 20 knots covers about 500 miles per day, and would make it from New Orleans to Venice in about 14 days. A ship moving at 10 knots would take twice the time. And so on.

Note that a realistic "refueling stop" would be the port of Algeciras, in southern Spain. That would be about 9 days out from New Orleans at 20 knots. When passenger liners traveled between the Med and NY they would stop at Algeciras before starting the trans-Atlantic "speed run".

Remember that it takes a ship 8 to 12 hours to travel from New Orleans to the mouth of the Mississippi. A "pilot" is required for that trip: http://www.crescentpilots.com/

A new Hilton was built at the former Capitol House Hotel in Baton Rouge in 2006 which now has a fitness center, pool and salons. Some of the rooms at this hotel come with beautiful views of the Mississippi River.

What’s the Southeastern Louisiana culture like?

Around Hammond area. Sorry I had to post here, I got smarta** remarks in the general post.

I went there. It was pretty fun. Lots of nice and rude people. The professors are good. It was actually pretty easy for a lot of my classes. The dorms are pretty new and some of the buildings are pretty new and nice. Of course, since this is the country, most of these students smoke weed a lot for fun, which I did not enjoy so I left. I prefer the big cities and clubbing. You often see crazy driving and people very high. The crime rate on campus was very high. It is just a very small rural area.
